Ambulances called twice to Gainsborough
DANGERS: The perils involved in this game of football that we all love were highlighted at Gainsborough Sports Centre on Sunday.
Two ambulances were called following nasty injuries sustained by players from Willis and Selkirk playing in the Flare Recruitment League.
League official Mike Hamilton, who was taking a break from refereeing through his own injury, was on hand with his camera to record the scene.
And it opened up a few questions in his mind.
“With as many as 10 games on at the same time at Gainsborough should St Johns be in attendance every week,” asked Mike?
You may also want to watch:
“And do clubs make the effort to ensure that their players are covered by insurance for any loss of earnings etc?
“Perhaps it should be mandatory before clubs can register with the Football Association.”
